Reviews for The Cities Book: A Journey Through the Best Cities in the World

This hefty coffee-table book boasts 750 photographs and provides a breezy overview of 200 vibrant cities. Thankfully, not all are predictable choices, including Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and Tehran, not on many Westerners' lists of vacation destinations. (Yes, San Francisco is included, though its fog is described -- debate amongst yourselves -- as a weakness. ) -- (01/01/2017) A weighty giant, a lavishly photographed, freshly updated guide to 200 of the planet's most enticing destinations, from Abu Dhabi to Zanzibar. You'll find itinerary tips, perfect day advice and lists for everything from the best cities for bookworms (New York, Paris...) to the best spots for coffee hounds (Addis Ababa, Oaxaca...). It's a book to inspire travel or while away a rainy day, cozied up in an armchair. -- (01/01/2017)
